Budget

The fiscal year (FY) 2015 request of $1.1 billion for chronic disease prevention and health promotion—including $469.7 million from the Prevention and Public Health Fund of the Affordable Care Act—is a decrease of $110 million from the enacted FY 2014 budget. Decreases reflect increased coverage for cancer services through health reform and elimination of the Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) program. Highlights include

  • Diabetes: The FY 2015 request proposes a continuation of FY 2014 increased investments for diabetes, for a total request of $150 million in FY 2015. CDC’s expanded approach helps state and local partners address primary prevention for people with pre-diabetes, including poor nutrition and physical inactivity.
     

  • Partnerships to Improve Community Health: This is a new, community-based initiative for chronic disease prevention that CDC began in FY 2014. The FY 2015 request proposes $80 million for CDC to help communities implement evidence-based interventions and innovative, promising practices.
     

  • Tobacco prevention and control: Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of disease, disability, and death in the United States. The FY 2015 request includes $210.8 million to continue the national tobacco education campaign that raises awareness about the health effects of tobacco use and prompts smokers to quit.
